I am looking to kayak the 14 mile day section of the Gunny Gorge and was wondering what the best water flow is to run it.

Looks a little low right now at 650. Hopefully summer flows will maintain 800 or so, the run is good at that level with enough action to keep you on your toes. Try to catch the flood next year, it gets flushed at flows over 4000.

At flows of 7000-8000 CFS it is not flushed at all but rather large.

I have done it at 600, 10,000, and lots of places in between. The higher the better in there, although it does get very big [Watch out for boulder garden at very high water]. My personal feeling for the "worth it" factor is it has to be over 1000.
